Coming in Storage magazine's June 2009 issue

A sneak peek at Storage magazine's next issue.

Storage, Heal Thyself
Self-healing storage emerged in 2008 and, understandably, has generated considerable interest among storage managers. The first question is "Do these systems really work?" while the next is "How do they do it?". We look at disk systems touting their self-healing capabilities and describe the methods employed by each one.

Dueling Directors
Handling storage growth without creating storage networking islands is a challenge, but high-capacity director-class switches can help cap that kind of sprawl. The two heavyweights of storage networking, Brocade and Cisco Systems Inc., want to control your SAN traffic. We look at how their products compare and differ, as well as each company's plans for a unified data center network.

State of Storage Tiering
From HSM to ILM, storage tiering has been promoted as the best way to ensure that you don't overspend on storage. Putting the right data in the right place makes a lot of sense, but it's not as easy as it may sound. We surveyed Storage readers to gauge the progress they've made with tiering, and to see what roadblocks may be slowing their progress.
